Lip Treatments - The Body Shop - Lip Butter - Shea

I have quite a few TBS Lip Butters, and decided to finally put them to good use. This is the first one I've opened, and very disappointed in the result. It doesn't last long and not very moisturising either. I don't feel like I got the white residue other reviewers mentioned, but many other lip balms do much better job. I hope the other fragrances work better.

This conditioner doesn't seem much to begin with, but I have seen a noticeable difference after using it just over a few weeks. I have been using salon brands for conditioners for a number of years, but due to budget constraints, I decided to go to drugstore store brand. I started using Herbal Essence Naked Volume conditioner, which seemed very creamy and rich as I lathered it up in my …Read more

Shampoo - Kiss My Face - Frequent Use Whenever Shampoo

Apr/05/2014

I am giving up on this shampoo after suffering through 3/4 of the bottle, and I got a bulk size bottle too. After reading all the positive reviews, I invested in this product. My hair and scalp are on the normal/dry side. This shampoo made my scalp slightly itchy after one day, and my hair never felt very clean and soft after each wash. I stuck through it, but finally decided to jump ship. I used …Read more

I have an array of TBS products, and I've been looking forward to try a BB cream, after hearing about it from my Korean friends. When I noticed this product on the TBS website, I jumped on the chance. I got the medium shade, as I'm Asian, and I guessed since there is only Light, Medium, & Dark, I would probably be Medium. I went into a Body Shop store, and asked to try the shades …Read more

My scalp and hair can get dry if I don't use the right product. From the looks of it, the product in the bottle looks really creamy, which I do love for s&c's. Once I rinse off the shampoo from the my hair, it feels more like a clarifying shampoo. My hair feels squeaky clean. Some people embrace the effect, but I was looking for something more moisturizing. To the Body's …Read more

Conditioner - ARTec - Kiwi Deeptreat Masque

This is a nice little product. I had never bought anything from the Kiwi line, and the only product I've used in the Artec line was the Smoothing shampoo, which was superb. I've never coloured my hair, which seems to be what the Kiwi line is tailored towards. The fragrance is mild and the tube packaging is super convenient. I use this product once a week as a deep conditioner. I just …Read more

Mascara - RIMMEL - Sexy Curves Mascara

My go-to mascara is the Rimmel Lycra Lash, but since this one was on sale, I decided to try it out. It was good in all aspects, except I found it to smudge more easily than the Lycra Lash. I don't mind the curvaceous brush. It doesn't clump, adds decent length and volume. But staying power is just a must for me, and this one just falls short.

Scrubs - The Body Shop - Grapeseed Facial Scrub

I just bought this at the Body Shop Boxing Day sale for $3. It will last me forever, so the price is fantastic. However, i find the scrub to not be invigorating enough. I don't like the beads to be as rough as the St Ives' Apricot scrub, but the beads in this scrub are just barely there. It contains a few large ones, and a bunch of tiny ones that I could barely feel anything from. I …Read more

This is my favourite tube lipgloss. I love the fragrance, which reminds me of orange soda. The colour is quite natural and gives my lips a nice sheen. It's not as sticky and thick as JT's. I'm still working hard on finishing my current tube, which has lasted me at least a good two years so far. But this is definately a staple in my makeup bag.

Mmmm, I love this one. I prefer lighter lip colours, and this is quite good as a neutral/girly pink colour. It's surprisinly moisturising, I don't even need to put a gloss on top it.
